On April 8, 2015, the Board of Directors adopted the following policy concerning payment of membership dues:
Membership in the Cupertino Chamber of Commerce (here by referred as the “Chamber”) is open to any business or person interested in the declared purposes of the association. A person seeking membership will be accepted as a member of the Chamber upon submission, receipt, acceptance and processing of the required online registration application and fees.
All Chamber memberships are for the specific and sole use of the registered business or individual for whom payment is made and are non-transferable. Fees are non-refundable and subject to change at membership renewal time. A member agrees to pay and remain current in the payment of fees upon expiry of its term in order to continue as a member. In order to join the Cupertino Chamber of Commerce you will need to complete the online application form and pay your annual fee. You will be notified by email when your membership renewal is due.
In the case of partial fee payment:
- Membership will not be activated until full payment has been received.
- Registered members will be notified by email of any outstanding fee and will have 45 days to make a full payment.
- If full payment has not been received within those 90 days your membership record will be set to inactive.
In the case of surplus payments of membership fees:
- The surplus will be pro-rated to your membership so your expiration date will be extended appropriately.
- If a member requires the Chamber to return the surplus, the Chamber will process the payment in thirty days from the date the request was received, and mail a check to the address in the member profile. Requests for the return of the surplus amount of the payment must be received within thirty days of the original payment.
A charge of $25.00 will be applied to all NSF check processed by the Chamber.
Please seek the advice from your personal accountant or local taxation office to determine if membership is tax deductible.
Member rights include, but are not limited to, the opportunity to vote on Chamber matters and to hold elected or appointed office. Privileges are defined as those tangible and intangible benefits, products and services offered with membership in the association.
